Serverless Tutorial 2017

Presented during ICDCS 2017

Thank you!

Thanks to all who attended WoSC workshop! You can see the gallery with pictures.


In this tutorial, we will present serverless computing, survey existing serverless platforms from industry, academia, and open source projects, identify key characteristics and use cases, and describe technical challenges and open problems. Our tutorial will involve a hands-on experience of using the serverless technologies available from different cloud providers (e.g. IBM, Amazon, Google and Microsoft). We expect our users to have basic knowledge of programming and basic knowledge of cloud computing.
